I believe I found ACOT around 2012 through Google. It had the best website layout for an awesome shopping experience. I have yet to find another online store like it.

I don't create layouts using photos. I create blank layout pages and albums for others to add their photos.

I'm heavily into paper, but I just started my obsession with printing my own paper, digis, embellishments, and elements.

I am working on Mothers and Faters Days items.

Yes I have my own craft room. I started referring to myself as a paper crafter since there were so many things I love to do with paper now other than scrapbook.

I've been to many crops. I love them, especially the excitement of the preparation. However, when I get their I tend to get lost in the games, shopping, socializing, classes, etc.

Watercoloring on cards, layouts, and albums; using colorless markers and trying to blend when coloring stamped/digi images; coating a space with glitter or Micronesia correctly; and taking so many orders from customers that I no longer enjoy crafting as a relaxing creative time

Hi again! I used to be on ACOT daily. Then life really smacked me hard and I had to try and catch up with it.

Long story short...Hubby got very sick with several various medical conditions within a few months time....kidney stones, mini strokes, etc and spent a lot of time off and on in the hospital. He ended up having to go on disability, hence we , we couldn't afford to live in CA anymore, we lost our home and had to move within a few weeks time from CA to KS. I got Lyme disease along with some other infections from a tick bite around the same time hubby got sick. So that slowed me down extremely, and yes I am still battling it. I was recently working in the airport cafe here where we live as a cook...town of around 4,000, and had to quit, at least for a time, because the Lyme has had a big effect on my joints and connective tissue, ie tendons, ligaments,and I had to have one of my feet rebuilt 4 weeks ago, so I am hobbling around the house in a cast and want to get back into my scrapping! I have a ton of supplies, which is great, because I can't afford to spend much since we live on hubby's disability check, and the only place we have to get supplies is Walmart. Our nearest 'city' is 150 miles away *L* at least they do have a Hobby Lobby there! ;) 

I do remember finding cherries on the site, and have found a few today looking around. Can someone remind me of the rules cherry thing? :)


How did you find ACOT?? I used to be a member here many moons ago, when they first started up I believe. I decided to search for you again and was so happy to find you still here! 


What technique would you like to learn? Oh gosh there are so many new things!! I did find some new powder, and i am not sure if it is used for embossing or something else. 


How many photos do you usually place on a layout? It varies, I like to use between 1 and 4

Are you into digital or paper layouts? Mostly paper. I used to do a lot of digi, but I don't remember how to now :( 

What page/theme are you working on right now (or did you complete most recently)? I have been doing more crafts, repurposing lately. But want to get back to making pages and cards! 

Do you have your own scrap room? I have my own area of a room that hubby and I use for our hobbies (he makes WWII model ariplanes) 

Have you ever been to a crop, either online or in real life? Oh yes, but not for years

What gives you the creeps? Spiders, Thunderstorms, Crime

Are you a night-owl or an early-bird? Right now, kind of in between. Depends on if it is a night I can or can not sleep. 

What is your favorite "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" beverage? Decaffinated Green tea *L*

How did you find ACOT.  I went searching for a forum that was busy with people who were involved so I would have someone to bounce ideas off of and just chat with.  I'm a very introverted person so I don't have a lot of friends (they drive me nuts..I'm not into drama), so just having people with the same likes as me is refreshing.
What technique would you like to learn?  I scrapbooked years ago, there was never really a technique I studied I just have fun with lots of color and sparkly things... :) 
How many photos do you put in a layout?  Depends on what the theme is or how many pictures I have.
Are you into digital or paper layouts?   Paper..it's more satisfying to me to get my hands dirty...
What page/theme are you working on?   Nothing yet, just getting back in the groove...I need to spend tomorrow organizing my scrapbook room and take inventory of what I have, and what I need to buy...hehehe...
Do you have your own scrap room?  Yes, I'm almost an empty nester so I took over the small bedroom.  I'm waiting for my desk to arrive from wayfair Saturday, then it's time to get off and running.
Have you ever been to a crop?  Yes...years ago.  I would like to try those overnight ones...it just scares me to do that.  I'm not good at meeting new people, I usually clam up or say something stupid..lol.
What gives me the creeps?  Ummm...people staring at me without talking gives me the creeps...
Are you a night owl or early bird?  Depends on my mood, right now I have to work 3rd shift for 6 months so night owl..but when I'm back on 1st shift I'm in bed by 8 and up by 4am...so early bird. 
What is your favorite "it's 5 o'clock somewhere" drink?  Baileys in Hot Cocoa...I'm not really a drinker...it's normally Pepsi but I got to start watching my sugar..so I'm drinking more water...but Baileys is what I can handle when I do have a drink.

I found ACOT via YouTube. People would post hauls and I’m like what is this? So I popped over and ordered a few things as a guest. It wasn’t until a year later that I watched another YouTuber (Janet at RTS) talking about cherry hunting…..and I was interested in this magical tale she was spinning. So I popped over again and actually registered this time…..then I went hunting for cherries. It’s like a game! A GAME!!!....that serves a purpose to earn credit to buy something that I was totally going to buy anyway. Thennnnnnnn, I discovered the “community” page and the challenges…. Game Changer. What great jumping off points when you are stuck….again, a chance to win a GC for something I’m going to buy anyway. Lol. I have a YouTube channel as well and probably every video I’ve done for the past month or so, you will hear me say “A Cherry on Top”.  Yep, I’m a fan.

I’m open to learning pretty much any technique and will try it at least twice before I decide it’s not for me. I’m a paper scrapper and I use anywhere from 1 to 10 photos on a one pager…. I think I probably use 2-3 the most. My husband and I are empty nesters so I turned one of the bedrooms into a scrap room. I’ve never been to a crop but recently signed up to go to the Heather’s Crafty Life (another YouTuber) retreat in May…. I’m so excited and also a little nervous. I’ll probably be one of those that gets one page done in 3 days. Lol. I am an early bird however, Friday evening after work is known as “Scrap Friday” in my house so on Fridays, I’m a bit of a night owl. I have too many points to earn any from this, I just wanted to tell everyone how I found ACOT because I just can’t shut up about it!!!

How did you find ACOT?? 
I did a google search about scrapbooking, and here I am!

What technique would you like to learn?
Right now, I'm discovering the universe and don't know too much about what I want to do or develop.

How many photos do you usually place on a layout?
4 to 7.

Are you into digital or paper layouts?
150% paper, I like to be able to touch, show and display my work.

What page/theme are you working on right now (or did you complete most recently)?
Right now I'm doing something about my last holidays, but I have over 30 pictures I absolutely want...

Do you have your own scrap room?
Not my own, but I share a crafts room with my husband. He builds models, and I do my own thing!

Have you ever been to a crop, either online or in real life? 
No, never, but I'd like to.

What gives you the creeps?
Butterflies... No, it isn't funny!

Are you a night-owl or an early-bird?
Definitely an early bird. A day that begins after 8 a.m. is a lost day!

What is your favorite "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" beverage?
French Provence rosé wine if I deem it reasonable. If not, then, green mint tea, Arab-style.

How did you find ACOT? 
I've been around for a while but never had the time to visit much on the board.  ACOT has been my go-to on line shop for at least 5-6 years if not longer.  I'm happy to have a little time to stop by now and hopefully play along with some challenges.

How many photos do you usually place on a layout?
Typically one 5x7 photo and sometimes 2 or 3 smaller ones.

Are you into paper or digital layouts?
Definitely paper all the way.

What page/theme are you working on right now (or did you complete most recently)?
I just finished a LO of our youngest grandson that we took on a trip to the Kennedy Space Center last March.

Do you have your own scrap room?
Yes, I am most fortunate to have a great scrap space.  We have a finished basement that is half man cave and half she shed!  LOL!  My son in law put in cupboards and countertop for me...18 feet of space top and bottom!

Have you ever been to a crop, either online or in real life?
Yes to both.  I have attended a weekend crop twice a year since 2006.  We have moved from the area, but my friends and I still attend and get to meet up twice a year.  Sometimes, I have them to our home for the weekend.  I have also set up and hosted on line crops for different teams that I have been on in the past.

What gives you the creeps?
Spiders...ugh!

Are you a night owl or an early bird?
A little of both.  I love to work when it's quiet, so I pick the best time for that and go with it.  I don't require more than 5 hours of sleep, so I'm awake most of the time!

What is your favorite, "it's 5 o'clock somewhere" beverage?
If I'm feeling frivolous, I would say Amaretto and coke, otherwise a good ole' French Vanilla Cappuccino!

How did you find ACOT??

Are you a night-owl or an early-bird?   Night owl.  I love to get my scrap on in the middle of the night.

What is your favorite "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" beverage?  Wine spritzer, although I hardly drink any longer.

Neither! LOL! I get up early because I have to work and/or because I have kids. And I go to bed early because I have to work and because kids. LOL

A cabernet wine, but I'm open to many other options! LOL

How did you find ACOT??   I honestly am not sure.  I have been papercrafting since 1994, and I stumbled on it through Google I believe.  I can say it became my favorite when the "cherry hunting" came about.  What can I say, it is fun  :greenwinkb:

What technique would you like to learn?  I want to learn more about Mediums - Gesso, Paints, so forth.  

How many photos do you usually place on a layout?  I go from one to three at most.  Here lately it is one or two. 

Are you into digital or paper layouts?  Strictly paper.  I have not gone to digital yet.

What page/theme are you working on right now (or did you complete most recently)?  Doing a Camping Chipboard Album.  One of those ones where you do a little and stop a little but I am determined to finish this one!  Not put it off until the next Crop

Do you have your own scrap room?  Yes, as big as it is I am finding myself putting more and more into it.

Have you ever been to a crop, either online or in real life? Yes i have.  To both.  

What gives you the creeps?  Spiders!!!

Are you a night-owl or an early-bird?  A little of both.  Was more a night owl but seems as life is happening it is more an early bird. 

What is your favorite "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" beverage?  Water or possibly a cup of hot tea.
